When in Spain for reasons I don't explain
I remain enjoying a brew
Don't deplore my fondness for fundador
You know how a fundador can lead to a few
And baby when in Rome I do as the Romans do

If per chance I'm saying farewell to France
And romance drops in from the blue
Cherchez l'amour I beg of you please endure
My taking a brief detour with somebody new
It's just that when in Rome I do as the Romans do

And though from Italy
I lied to you prettily
Why think of me bitterly
You know that I'm true

Except now and then in Rome
I get that old yearn in Rome
And naturally when in Rome
I do as the Romans do

If I write happily
Best wishes from Napoli
Don't cable me snappily
To tell me we're through

'Cause once again in Rome
In somebody's den in Rome
Well pussycat, then in Rome
I do as the Romans
Disregard the signs and the omens
When in Rome I do as the Romans do
